Microsoft doesn't own sd -

https://www.sdcard.org/about_sda

They do own and license the exFAT filesystem -

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Microsoft-Licenses-Windows-7-s-exFAT-Flash-File-Format-129512.shtml

We wouldn't be required to use exFAT other than USB mass storage connection convenience.

Thanks for clarifying EM. I was regurgitating something i read elsewhere on here without background check. I know, not like me.. Lol... And just wanted to put it out there, but ultimately I really don't agree with the direction most of the OEM's have been going with non-removable batteries and deleting microsd integration.

That's how I'm rolling. I'm a memory whore so I'm putting every bit of my 96GB of memory to use. Well, almost every bit. Just deleted a couple movies

Interesting that they give the win to the Padfone 2
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Asus Padfone 2 - Comparison - Know Your Mobile

What they fail to mention is that it won't likely be available in the US and the fact that the Note 2's S-pen really is that much better than any stylus on the market. Not really a credible review/comparison overall, but still interesting.

I do agree... HTC and Sammy made the most noise in past.

in 2012.. HTC has not brought as much as Samsung... in the way of new innovations

This year... Sammy and Asus have done a lot.. to shake things up.

Moto and HTC need to up their game!

If Optimus G is scheduled for 11/2 release on ATT, then I wonder if Sprint will release at the same time? If they do, then I can't see a 10/26-10/28 or 11/2-11/4 release for the Galaxy Note 2:
LG Optimus G available Nov. 2 for $199.99, preorders start tomorrow

Maybe the "by mid-November" indicator was more of a definitive mid-November projection, for the Note 2 US release.

Wow, i usually give props to GottaBemobile, but in this case its a total fail. For starters how the heck can you compare two devices that one isn't even out yet. Most of the stuff they wrote state "Details are sparse". Really and you give it the upper hand. Call me back GBM when you actually have the devices on hand and do a through side by side compare.

Wow, simply wow.

Lots of conjecture about this. People have been posting perspective studies/lines to see if everything lines up (they do). Doesn't mean the images are real, but then this could be some odd prototype that someone got a hold of. A lot of the early LG Nexus pics were called fake at first too, before so many showed up that most believe they're in the right ballpark at the very least.

I'm just curious if we'll see another CDMA Nexus phone out the gate like we did with the Galaxy Nexus, or if it will be GSM only until next year.

Well, there is that talk about "Nexus Certified" - if that's like "Windows Certified" then all sorts of things could break loose.

So, I'm hoping this means that the Note 2 will be an earlier release on Sprint (e.g. Weekend starting the 10/26 or 11/1

LG Optimus G on Sprint releasing November 11th for $199.99 | The Verge

Otherwise, we could be looking, at the earliest, a release on 11/25...unless Sprint decides to release both phones at the same time (which isn't typical for 2 superphones).

The Verge also posted a review of the LG Optimus G, for both AT&T and Sprint. Oddly enough, the 13MP camera on Sprint's version (which is essentially the global version) is lacking compared to AT&T's 8MP camera. The comparison pics are like night and day, and make me wonder if a software update could fix that. That said, the AT&T version is full of bloat while the Sprint version is pretty clean. Well, clean for LG, that is... I'm personally not a fan of their skin.

The best news of all this however is that if the rumored LG Nexus is indeed based on this phone, it will likely be one kick-ass device if it gets a storage bump. Those who need a removable battery and/or storage will still need to look elsewhere, but performance on stock JB should be killer (and the rumored 8MP camera may be the better choice if it's like the one on the AT&T Optimus G).

Oh, and PadFone 2... drool.

Edit: October 25th release date for the Note 2 confirmed by Sprint! Drex, you can add that to your list.

Looks like they are saying $299.99 for Sprint GNote 2. Quad-core Exynos is interesting. Anyone know if this is based off of A9 or A15 arch?

Being that the previous stuff we saw was all prototype - I'm hoping the specs will change ever so slightly.

Sidebar/Off topic. Has there been a way to remove the invasive "features" like S-Face (My nickname for Smart Stay), S-Voice, and others, for the newest Samsung software? I don't want to be S-Face'd.

Rather than relying on the different website links, here's the "official" press release from Sprint:
Sprint Newsroom | Samsung Galaxy Note II with Sprint 4G LTE Available Oct. 25 for $299.99

My favorite part of the press release:
Quote:
Following the same business-friendly path, Galaxy Note II is a SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) device, providing the ability to securely sync corporate email, calendars, contacts and sensitive information. SAFE provides a comprehensive approach to making Android devices more secure and manageable for business users. With a thorough quality assurance process in place to test and confirm the Note II enterprise capabilities, SAFE systematically meets the rapidly evolving needs of IT and the growing number of businesses allowing employees to “bring your own device” (BYOD) to work.
That means, no problems for my IT department switching my active sync when I upgrade.

Interestingly enough, I can't seem to find any indication on the formal press release that the $299 price tag is attached to the 16gb version. I really hope that the price tag means they're starting at the 32gb version, just like the Optimus G.

I didn't even notice the mention of international capabilities.

That said, It's likely a locked, non-accessible SIM that can work, using Sprint's International roaming rates (which really wouldn't be worth it).

I take it back...I don't want the Padfone 2 (not even an unlocked one to use as a dedicated multi-media device/international phone). No microSD slot = FTL, for me. Complete deal breaker:

ASUS announces the PadFone 2: 4.7-inch smartphone with 10.1-inch tablet dock

Final Answer.

Is the winning prize a free Note 2? ...LOL...well, practically, since Best Buy has an extra $50 waiting for me to use by the end of December and I have gift cards all set to pay majority of the costs!

Looks like the Note 2 is the big winner for the fall lineup so far. Damn I wish there was a Nexus version. Lol

Being that the previous stuff we saw was all prototype - I'm hoping the specs will change ever so slightly.
Exynos Quad is A9 tech.

Ok, but dated now.

Next generation is the Arm Cortex A15 or the Qualcomm Krait (found in the current S4 dual or S4 Pro quad core).

BTW, HTC J Butterfly releasing in Japan on KDDI - S4 Pro, 2 GB ram, 5" 1080p.

Bigger is better, your right. But, the EVO LTE has a 2000mah and the battery life kicks @$$.

Wish Sprint would say whether or not they're getting the LG Nexus...

I'd prefer this over the LG Optimus G mainly because of the software support from Google.

If the Optimus G comes out November 11 as announced, then when would one expect the LG Nexus to come out?

Again, they're virtually the same phone... so it'd be weird if Sprint got BOTH but who knows
